When most people slip and fall, they assume the accident is their fault. They should have seen that broken concrete or tree root sticking up out of the sidewalk. However, in many cases the safety of the people creating foot traffic in and around a home or business depends on that home or business's owner.
If you've taken a fall resulting in a serious injury, call Peterson Law Offices to check your legal rights. So-called "slip and fall" cases are not always easy to
prove, but it's certainly worth researching. In many instances, if a potentially dangerous condition existed, such as torn carpeting, it is presumed that the injured should have noticed the potential hazard and avoided it.
It is often the case, however, that an owner was well aware of a dangerous condition and did nothing to fix it or warn those walking near it. In this case, "premises liability" comes into play and Peterson Law Offices can help you to seek compensation for injuries and related medical bills. From your first phone call, our lawyers can help give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you got your questions answered.
If your incident looks, indeed, like a situation in which the owner
created a dangerous situation, was well aware of it, but did nothing,
has assets to recover and/or insurance coverage, then we'll take on your case. If it doesn't look likely to win, we will be completely honest with you in that regard. Either way, the lawyers of Peterson Law Offices find out the facts first, and then help you every step of the way. Contact us today at 503-280-0888 to find out more.
